Yet another Dubai-based megaproject is underway—this time the world’s biggest horse racecourse, and it’s already being hailed as the future horseracing capital of the world, given the infrastructure it plans for the industry. Unlike Ascot, Lexington or Newmarket, Meydan will in fact be an ENTIRE CITY built around The Sport Of Kings—a gigantic mixed use development centered on the racecourse which will be the new home of the Dubai Racing Club and the Dubai World Cup.This racecourse that is being called “Meydan” (the word stands for a meeting place where people discuss, compete and achieve), will be an entire city in itself and will be the new home of the Dubai Racing Club and the Dubai World Cup This gigantic project will span 76 million square feet and feature state-of-the-art dirt and turf tracks, while a world-class grandstand will boast a 55,000 to 60,000 capacity and span one kilometre.

Cricket: Twenty20 Indian Premier League

Tonight sees the first game in the controversial Indian Premier League – a six-week Twenty20 tournament between eight teams comprised of Indian and international players. For purists it’s the end of the world and even those sympathetic to the game have their concerns.

A central issue is the availability of international players, with the Australian Cricket Board ruling that Australian Test players can only compete in the first two weeks of the tournament.

As only four international players can play for any team, it’s unclear whether any Australians will appear in tonight’s opening match between the Bangalore Royal Challengers and the Kolkata Knight Riders. Ricky Ponting and David Hussey are signed to Kolkata and Nathan Bracken to Bangalore but there are other international heavyweights on both sides.

What we do know is that Ten paid a lot of money for the rights to all 59 matches and will be praying the tournament strikes a chord with the punters, if not the purists.

It’s Official: Bush Is Objectively The Most Hated President In History

Congratulations to George W. Bush and the Republican Party for another historic milestone set by the Great Leader:

At 39 months in the doghouse, George W. Bush has surpassed Harry Truman’s record as the postwar president to linger longest without majority public approval.

Bush hasn’t received majority approval for his work in office in ABC News/Washington Post polls since Jan. 16, 2005 three years and three months ago. The previous record was Truman’s during his last 38 months in office.

And the Torturer-in-Chief/Loser-of-Two-Wars has another 8 months to pad his record. Why all the BDS?

His rating specifically on handling the war in Iraq is equally poor — 33 percent approve, 65 percent disapprove — and on the economy it’s even worse, with a record 70 percent disapproval.

It’s the war and the economy, stupid. Good luck with that (R) next to your name, St. McCain. And every other Gooper for the next several election cycles for that matter.

And here’s why St. McCain is really screwed:

Just 7 percent of Democrats approve of his work overall (a point from the low in this group) compared with 74 percent of Republicans. (Fewer Republicans, 59 percent, approve of his work on the economy, a career low.)

St. McCain can’t run against Bush because he’ll piss off the fraction of the population he desperately needs to win: the delusional Bush dead-enders known as the Republican base, who think everything is just awesome and King George is George Washington. My question is: how many wars does Bush have to lose, how bad does the economy have to get, how many US cities have to drown, how many laws does Bush have to break before Republicans finally disown this loser?

But this is what warms my heart. All those “average Americans” that David Brooks, George Will and David Broder are always talking about really, really hate Bush too.

The balance, as often is the case in U.S. politics, is tipped by the political center. Just 27 percent of independents and 23 percent of moderates approve of his job performance, the latter a career low for the president.
